Not a big fan of NBC news but this is something I thought you all would enjoy taking a look at:

"The economy is so bad in Argentina that the government recently said it would start taxing overseas credit card purchases. It also demanded that banks report all credit card transactions -- foreign or domestic -- saying the data would be used to find tax cheats."

The whole article is at:

Thats a good idea, i really dont think its fair people can buy from amazon to skip paying tax.  In the short term you save a few bucks, but when everyone is doing it...your kids get a lower quality education, crime goes up, unemployment goes up

It's certainly a little hard to tell whether he's being sarcastic or not...

No, they don't realize it.

They're there, in their room.
